LYRICS

Bright Morning Stars

Bright morning stars are rising,
Bright morning stars are rising.
Bright morning stars are rising.
Day is a'breaking in my soul.

Oh where are our dear fathers?
Oh, where are our dear fathers?
Oh where are our dear fathers?
Day is a breaking in my soul.

They are down in the valley praying.
They are down in the valley praying.
They are down in the valley praying.
Day is a breaking in my soul.

Oh where are our dear mothers?
Oh where are our dear mothers?
Oh where are our dear mothers?
Day is a'breaking in my soul.

They have gone to heaven shouting.
They have gone to heaven shouting.
They have gone to heaven shouting.
Day is a breaking in my soul.
